Our Story Timeline


Dr. Domonique Randall encountered her first experience working with a child with autism while taking a communication disorders class. Her passion for behavior analysis deepened during a Houston conference where Dr. Ivaar Lovaas publicly demonstrated her work as a direct therapist.


Studying under Dr. Shahla Rosales at the University of Northern Texas, Dr. Randall worked with the North Texas Young Autism project and was the first behavior analyst at the DFW Center for Autism Social Skills, in collaboration with Hope World Wide, to assist high-functioning preteens with Asperger syndrome.


Amassing hundreds of hours shadowing and working in inclusion settings with school districts and religious settings, Dr. Randall served a broad range of children with autism spectrum disorders. She also conducted extensive research on how siblings can be vital and effective participants in helping children with autism learn basic skills.


Returning to Houston as an experienced BCBA, Dr. Randall opened the Shape of Behavior, the only full-day private, clinic-based ABA facility in Houston and implemented a professional training program. Many of the behavior analysts that she trained now run their own successful practices or practice ABA within the public school system.

While studying for her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, Dr. Randall began teaching learning and behavior for the psychology department at the University of Houston Clear Lake and the Sugar Land campus. During her doctoral internship, she helped the Sam Houston State University program gain affiliation with the BACB, which allows students to acquire the necessary hands-on experience for achieving behavior analysis certification.
